After watching some on-line vids, I determined it was the center post, or tub, gasket at the bottom. A cheap part, and easy to snap-out the old and snap-in the new - But - I had to dissassemble the washer into individual washer component molecules. Luckily, I'd done this recently to replace the clutch drive, then the motor, then this. Not too bad, really. Washer body off (2 screws and two snap-links); agitator out (7/16" socket on extension); bang off tub nut (heavy hammer and punch); bang off drive block (hammer again); and pull tub up an out. Tub drain disconnected (pliers); pull off level sensing tube; three spring mounts (nutdriver); then just yank tub up. Poke out Centerpost gasket; snap in a new one; reassemble. Piece of cake.

Had a lot of corrosion on the shaft area and had a hard time removing the inner tub but after some WD-40 and unprintable words and labor it popped off. Cleaned everything up, shaft, inner drum and outer drum. After that everything was a piece of cake. Thanks for the help!

I was thrilled that the agitator parts were so easy to replace, but that didn't totally fix my problem. I looked underneath the washer and found black rubber shavings from a worn part and looked online and found that the problem was most likely the Direct Drive Motor Coupling. I watched the video and ordered the part. The coupling was actually broken. After replacing the part, the washer works great...better than it has in years. I think I will work on our dryer now.

Parts Select is AMAZING!! It directed us to the correct parts. Ordering was easy. But the best part was the videos. The step by step instruction was a godsend. We followed it, paused it, compared it, did it. We had to battle grease and tight quarters, but got it done. The machine works good. We spent about $65 as opposed to $400+ for a new washer. Great website.

When my 13 yr old washer stopped working the timing was not at all good to spend money on a new one. I have two of my children getting marriied within the next year and funds are tight. I decided to troubleshoot it myself online by googling my problem. I found out what I thought would be the parts I needed, I took a chance and ordered them. The bonus was the videos that you emailed me with the complete installation instructions. I am a banker and a 53 yr old woman ...not exactly a handy man. With your videos I was able to fix my washer by my self for just the cost of parts...so my wedding budget is still in place. I highly reccommend PartSelect for anyone...cause If I can do it anyone can do it! Thank you PartSelect

one thing that you do not need to do is to remove the pump from the motor, I tried to remove it as per the instructions but the pump cracked,remove both inlet and outlet hoses from the pump and remove the pump and motor together, don't try to take them apart, you don't need to, thanks

Washing Machine stopped spinning and agitating, clicking/hum noise when lid closed.

Did not know problem or how to access - thought the back came off washer. Typed in symptoms and it pretty much pinpointed the most likely cause. Watched video on how to take it apart (BTW the front and sides come off, NOT the back). Followed the guide, took motor off and sure enough one of the plastic couplers was cracked. Ordered from PartSelect and with regular shipping the cost was under $20 (ordered Tues. night, had it by Thurs.) Installed part - note as someone else said the new piece has metal inserts which make it really snug to go around the drive shaft, but the tip about using an oversized socket and some light taps to get it on worked liked a charm. Put it all back together (getting case back on was toughest part)and its been working fine for the last week - heavy & lite loads. Have to say was thinking the whole thing needed to be replaced (sound & age) but for $20 it was worth the shot...Glad i came here first!

Remove the sides of the washer, motor ran but nothing moved, closer look found drive coupling broke (10 years and it made of plastic) Order a new part from you, arrived very quickly. Install the part 10 min. later it was running.
